2005 Lokoya Spring Mountain Cabernet - 96 pts!
Established in 1995, Lokoya is a collection of four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations: Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain and Diamond Mountain. These limited-production wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with native yeast, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, resulting in the purest expression of place. Several 100 point scores from Robert Parker have launched this wine to Cult Status. 

Given the high elevation of the sites, the vineyards demand constant attention. The deep understanding of the vineyard trajectory in each vintage comes from Winemaker Christopher Carpenter’s years of expertise. Intervention is kept to a minimum both in the vineyard and in the cellar, leaving the fruit to express itself as naturally and eloquently as possible.

Rating 96 RP - 2005 Lokoya Spring Mountain Cabernet - 96 pts! The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain has a blackish ruby color and a beautifully sweet nose of spring flowers, blackberries, and charcoal. It is full-bodied, has fabulous purity, great texture, and a finish of close to a minute. This is a sensationally opulent, rich Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink beautifully for 20-25 or more years. Four absolutely stunning Cabernet Sauvignons from winemaker Chris Carpenter, these are the creme de le creme of some of the Jess Jackson-owned Napa vineyards. All mountain sites, all 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all unfined and unfiltered – and all four are of irrefutably great quality. The case productions are relatively limited, from a very small 120-cases from the Howell Mountain and Spring Mountain sites to nearly 800 cases of Mt. Veeder. They all share several things in common – great ripeness, great texture, and fabulous aging potential. For example, the 1997s are just now starting to move into early adolescence. RP
